Get ready to power your way to pleasure! The Sun moves from the fiery zodiac sign Aries into laidback and comfort-conscious Taurus on Thursday, April 19 at 9:12 a.m. (PDT) / 12:12 p.m. (EDT). While Aries inspired action and new beginnings, with the sign of the Bull it's time to slow down, stabilize and build a solid foundation for what you started.
Ruled by Venus, the love goddess, in her earthy and fertile form, Taurus exudes abundance and sensuality. The Taurus season is the height of spring in the Northern Hemisphere -- when nature delights the senses and invites you to indulge in the beauty and pleasure of the physical world.

The Taurus Sun invites you to build and to stabilize -- and reveals how you can channel the practical power of the Earth element into your everyday life. Read your Sun in Taurus horoscope below:
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
The Sun in your 2nd House of Resources supports you in strengthening your financial foundation. Take time to clarify what you have, what you need and what you want. With Mercury Retrograde in this arena, you may need to resolve money matters from the past before moving forward. The more you align your work with your values and passions, the easier it will be to create the prosperity you desire.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Happy Birthday, Taurus! The Sun in your own sign and your 1st House of Self marks the start of your personal new year, and a time for getting in touch with your desires. Pay attention to what feels fun, exciting and expansive and take the risk of incorporating more of these elements into your life. When you value yourself enough to act on your deepest yearnings, you break through any blocks to abundance.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
The Sun eases into your 12th House of Dreams and Imagination, calling you to slow down your social life and turn your attention inward. Nurture your body and spirit through rest and retreat as your personal cycle comes to an end and you prepare for the start of a new birthday year. Pay attention to your dreams, feelings and intuition for practical guidance on how to strengthen and stabilize your inner world.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
In your 11th House of Groups and Friends, the Taurus Sun invites you to build a stronger social network by reaching out to people who share your values and ideals. This is an auspicious time for networking and attracting allies who support you in realizing your dreams. With Mercury Retrograde in this realm, friends from the past can help you remember what matters most and give you insights into your future.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
The Sun in your 10th House of Career helps you create a secure foundation for professional success. Make the most of this time by taking concrete steps toward achieving long-term goals, and be willing to take on greater power and responsibility in your work life. Reconsider what you love and value about your work to help you define your goals for the future.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
The Sun shines on your 9th House of Expansion, inspiring you to step outside your everyday life and view your world from a higher perspective. Broadening your physical, mental and spiritual horizons -- through travel, study or meditation -- gives you valuable new insights into how to create greater security and abundance. Take the risk of acting on your intuitive knowledge rather than relying on logic.
